"I could dance all fuckin day!"
These are the words of 88 year old Dancing Nana - the latest YouTube video to go viral this week. If you have not seen it, do yourself a favour and watch it. You MUST watch right to the end with the volume at full to get the full effect. I missed her parting words the first time I watched and even then I loved her. When I watched a second time on my computer rather than my phone, I was totally in love with her!
It is a simple video made by her granddaughter who is in a car waiting for her nana to come out of the house. The scene is captured in innocence which makes it all that more endearing. Nana is so authentic and by 88 she bloody well should be. We all should be. There must be something so freeing by that age. It starts a few years before that as I can attest but I would have to say I am not quite there yet. I have tried on occasion to just let er rip in public, like sometimes if I am in a department store and a song comes on that I really like and I find myself starting to groove a little between the racks of marked down dresses but my daughter, if she notices, will stop me, horror on her face before I get too carried away.
So without further ado, I present you with "Dancing Nana"
May we all dance till we drop!
